Head six blocks south on Comal street to access the running trail around Lady Bird Lake. The trail is a 10 mile loop and good for all skill levels. The trail is an amazing place for stroller walks, runs, or bike rides. If you take the trail west it will lead you straight to Rainey Street or the heart of downtown Austin with some amazing river views along the way!.
